|The Need for Cybersecurity Among Industrial Firms is Growing|
In an industrial set-up, various equipment's and components such as controllers, servers, remote terminals, monitoring equipment, and sensors are connected to the internet. Further, computer systems, applications, moving assets to the cloud or even remote facilities being connected to the Wide Area Network (WAN) require internet usage. All these are being done to gather real time insights for enhanced decision making. However, this is increasing the attack surface. Adding several IoT devices to the network is only creating challenges for managing security as they may transmit sensitive data. Further, with the IT-OT convergence, the attack surface is expanding and subject to higher risks. IT personnel are still focusing on the security of IT network with little insight on securing the OT infrastructure.
